  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Coconana Granola

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 banana (ripe, mashed)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon

    and sea salt.

  3. Add the mashed banana and coconut oil into the bowl with the oat mixture.

    Use a spoon to stir until all is very well combined. The mixture should be evenly

    coated.

  4. Spread mixture in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Press down slightly

    and place in oven.

  5. Bake for 45-55 minutes, checking and tossing every 15 minutes. Break up large

    clusters as necessary. Once the granola is evenly browned and no longer feels

    damp, remove from oven. As it cools it will crisp up even more, so do not over-bake.

  6. Once cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one

    week. Or store in the freezer for a few months.
